The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said on Monday in a news release that Sierra Soups is recalling its 13-ounce packages of Pasta e Fagioli due to the soup mix containing an individually wrapped package of pasta, which contains gluten.

The outer packaging states the product is gluten-free. People who have allergies to gluten run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume the product.

The recalled Pasta e Fagioli was distributed nationwide in retail stores and through mail orders, according to the FDA.

The product comes in a 13-ounce, clear plastic package bearing the product name as well as the statement "Gluten-Free (without Pasta)."

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with the issue.

The FDA says the recall was initiated after it was discovered that the gluten-containing product was distributed in packaging that did not clearly reveal the presence of gluten. An investigation shows the problem was caused by a breakdown in the company's packaging processes.

Consumers who have purchased Pasta e Fagioli Soup are urged to return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions are asked to contact the company at 1-559-387-0552, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., or send an email.
